Replace string character with vbcrlf and print to file

I'm trying to pass my vb app a comma delineated string via the command line such as:

1.jpg,2.jpg,3.jpg

I want my vb app to replace every comma with vbcrlf and print it to a text file so that when viewed it looks like this:

1.jpg
2.jpg
3.jpg

I've tried using the Replace command but it doesn't seem to be working.

works for me.  Perhaps replace is doing exactly what it's supposed to do and your error is in creating the print file.

Private Sub Form_Load()
    Dim s As String
    s = "1.jpg,2.jpg,3.jpg"
    Dim s2 as string
    s2 = Replace(s, ",", vbCrLf)
    MsgBox s2
End Sub

you can also use the Split Function to split the original command string into its components:

Private Sub Form_Load()
    Dim s As String
    Dim Parms() as Variant
    s = Command$
    Parms = Split(s,",")
    Dim iString as Integer
    if UBound(Parms) > 0 then
       for iString = 1 to UBound(Parms)
          MsgBox Parms(iString)
       Next
    end if
End Sub

Should be like this:
Private Sub Command1_Click()
    Dim str As String
    str = Command
    str = Replace(str, ",", vbCrLf)
    Open "c:\output.txt" For Output As #1
        Print #1, str
    Close #1
End Sub
